My Biz 2016

Setelah berpindah ke Selangor, aku tutup biz 3 bulan. Kadang rasa cam nak tutup terus tapi bila tengok stok berlambak dan ada orang duk emel hari2 awat tak leh oder tanya....rasa semangat la sikit.

Sebenarnya serabut dengan tutup kedai, tutup akaun pelbagai...pindah. kos pindah (bukan murah...), cari kedai baru, update address, ngan ada orang nak mintak sponser, yang platform shopping online asyik kontek suruh akak join depa...macam2 peninglah akak dibuatnya,

Kalau tak buat biz, boring pulak duduk rumah mop lantai....at least dengan kedai ni aku ada benda lain nak fikir selain buat baju, buat lantai, buat jamban...masak apa hari ni...dll. heheh...

So memang rugila pindah ni. Tapi bersyukur sangat banyak pembaziran dibuang.
1. pekerja (dah buang)
2. kwsp n socso
3. mesin kredit kad (potong....azab nak potong servis ni, setan betul) CASH ONLY la sekarang.
4. fixed tel line (potong...last time pekerja asyik kol boipren...bangang tul)
5. unwanted seller/supplier....(bila u buka kedai, salesman akan mai dan they expect u to buy on the spot. ada yang tiap minggu mai...


1. sekarang ni, stok yang boleh expired, akak akan jual sampai habis (yg dah expired buang)...rugi tau. catit yg expired tu...produk macam ni...kurangkan. restok yg betul2 jalan saja.
2. fokus produk mana nak jual...akak dah tak nak jual produk merepek. yang branded dan premium saja sekarang. produk murah selalu akan ada problem...
3. fokus online dulu...
4. sekarang no pekerja. tapi lambat laun kena ambil juga...sekarang ni buleh cope. no walk in. sesapa nak datang wajib buat appointment. jimat duit pekerja.

My feeling?...i feel happy that i m involved 100% in my shop now. I m taking my time decorating it. Make it nice...not like typical shop....it's comfy for my kids to lepak there while i m at 'work'.
Tak macam dulu, harap orang yang bungkus...it's like a start over lah.

InsyaAllah, kalau ada masa akan ku coretkan...APAKAH langkah2 nak cari kedai dan buka kedai. Buat bisnes, semua orang macam WOW! ada kedai...tapi sepatutnya kedai tu last sekali.

Akak ni...nak wat camner, tak buleh buka gudang di rumah. Lagipun susah nak meet up supplier kalau kt rumah...semua orang macam, eh buat kat rumah jelah...kalau suami bagi dah lama dah...tapi bagus gak, kalau tak tak leh fokus. Asyik fikir nak cuci jamban, lap cermin, lap lantai, sapu sampah...dll kerja rumah yang banyak gila tu. Kbai.

My IKEA Kitchen II - Part 2 R&D, Design

Sebelum memulakan design anda, ukurlah betul dengan tepatnya dalam mm....ukuran ruang dapur.
Ikea dah banyak update design dapuq depa, so, memang kena selak dan selak dan selak katalog tu dan fikir bebetul apa yg anda mahu.
Lagi 1, jangan sebab orang lain ada kita pun nak mesti ada...takde pun buleh masak. Contohnya oven gedabak dan hood. Tak mati kalau takde. Ada pon tak guna pon. Hiasan? No way.
Fikir luar kotak sikit...
Yang penting murah...oh haritu kata takda bajet....eh manada, bajet mesti ada, i bukan mak datin....
Kriteria dapur akak:
1. Bajet kurang dari 4K.
2. Portable/Modular kitchen - none fixed to the wall.
3. No wall cabinet.
4. Boleh cuci bawah kabinet  - mesti ada kaki takmau tudung/penutup kaki.
5. Putih putih putih.
6. Functional....bukan sekadar hiasan.

cukuplah tuh.

Then download the programme from their web. Senang....

Then pilih jenis ruang, masukkan di mana paip, plak ...(susah sikit nak masukkan plak/suis). Tandakan di mana soket, senang nak rancang di mana nak letak cabinet.

Then, pilih cabinet mana yang sesuai untuk ruang anda. Ada banyak pilihan....kena bersabar dengan karenah diri. Hihihi.

Ada banyak pilihan untuk jenis aksesori....bajet tinggi lagi best. Bajet rendah pilih shelves sajalah. Nanti ada duit, upgrade letak wire basket pulak....sekarang depa ada banyak design untuk drawer.
Ade jenis nampak 4 segi jer dari luar, tapi bila tarik, wah! ada 2 lagi drawer kat dalam....tampak sangat kemas. Harga....up sikit dapatlah. Heheh.

Apapun berbalik kepada bajetlah...jangan risau Ikea kan buleh upgrade2...iklan sungguh. Harap Ikea hire akak jadi designer....heheh. So, print semua, ingat password home planner tu, pergilah kami ke gedung Ikea...pergi jer ke zon dapur tu....cari rep sales/designer. Bagitau dia, i nak beli dapur...dan dia akan tolong check design anda, suggest tukar produk ke...buleh la tanya macam2 kat situ.

Dapur i, Sangat simple dan yang paling murah untuk ruang ni yang bersesuain dengan kehendak i dari segi aksesorinya...material dan counter top paling murah. Yg penting kaler PUTIH. Campur aksesori semua RM3208.50.
Mahal gak la....ingat boleh dapat RM1500....sebab takde pun wall kabinet. Dulu bolehlah...







Akak malas nak tulis apa jenis aksesori yang akak beli...kalau nak tau silalah komen. Nanti kak ada mood kak salin...
TBC.

My IKEA Kitchen II - Part 1 - DREAMING

Hi,...lots of people read my post bout building up your own IKEA kitchen....
Is it worth it? Yes..it does always the way u like it...last time i wrote in English or Bahasa?. Later i will re read my own entry....

Now after several years, we decided to move from that small town Kulim....to begin a new life + headache....hahaha.

Now, IKEA Cheras is OPENED!!!

Since we live in Seri Kembangan now so it is much faster to go to Cheras compared to Damansara...I love the old one though..

So, now they call it the METOD kitchen...not Factum.
First, study what kind of small kitchen u want....
Get the idea first....
Then budget....
So, I have no budget but the less expensive the better. This is our RENTED house only. We gonna bring the kitchen when we move out later. But I bet the owner would want it....we can sell it to him...if not, bring it with us no big deal.
This is what i love about this kitchen. No commitment to the wall :)
They called it modular kitchen. No fixing to the wall. You can fixed it if you want...or not. Up to u.

Now you can download lots of kitchen app to your smart phone....study what type you want...color scheme, theme...type of handle, pening nak fikir semua ni. Overloaded beb! Ahkirnya banyak tido dari fikir.

After u finished study, go to IKEA website download the program....Go measure your kitchen area PRECISELY!...jangan agak2 ya. Betul2 ukurannya.
Then just enter the info in your virtual ikea kitchen design...
CAUTION: This process is a tiring process. Thats why it is very expensive to hire a designer. You will want to make lots of changes....again and again and again....sigh - TBC (bersambung)

This is the area....big house but small kitchen space with that stupid sink...

I am sad....my baby decided to wean so early

She is about 11 mo...
It was just like every other day...
It was Thursday we decided to head to home town...
Baby had a mild fever and cold...normal la takkan BF tak kena sakit.
Nah, she's gonna be OK tomorrow...She's a BF baby...antibody tip top. Was (sob sob sob).

It was just out of a sudden, I dunno what happened...my body odor? Milk not tasty? Slow mo?...she rejected me. She refuses my B.....I tried for days....as usual la. But she cried every time i offered my B. Turning her head away and her hand pushing my B away....as I am not ready to wean, I feel sad. Still feeling sad right now....normally me is the one who decided not to BF anymore it's time to let me go.

Yeah I m hurting. You know la what will happen if suddenly baby won't feed...so uncomfy!!!
Since it happened at my hometown, No pump.I rushed to tesco looking for the cheapest manual pump. I thought I never has to pump and feel like a cow anymore. But who knows it not my call to decide...it's Allah call.

I told hubby, he said maybe it's time to let go....just bottle fed her. It's easier.
But it's not 2 years yet..still not complete. Still a long way to go.

I feel like should i enjoy my freedom now?...or keep pumping maybe she will BF again. I don't know.
Now just use formula. Luckily I brought FM to hometown. I always mix her porridge with FM so it tastes better...

Maybe it's ok to just wean now....no more trouble weaning in toddlerhood. They said should wean in babyhood.

Maybe I always said (niat) when I was pregnant to her that I wanted to wean her before her 1st birthday and now my wish is granted....Alhamdulillah?

Harini terasa sentap

Mungkin aku over sensitif kot.
You know lah kan aku ni...ouswipe aka sahm or wahm or i dunno what.
Eventho u buka kedai ke you still ouswipe la sebab takda pendapatan masuk exact dalam bank bulan bulan dan u pon flexi....jaga anak nombo 1 yang lain tolak tepi kan....
Tapi life still hectic la...sama kot tak semestinya i ouswipe i tak boleh komplen betapa sibuknya kerjaya i yang takda gaji ni uruskan anak ....
Bila i cerita, Terus dibanding kehidupan i dengan kehidupann seorang lagi yang ada kerjaya yang sama gak uruskan anak....(tapi dia ada tukang gaji)....
Sentap la....

Rupanya mak aku yang menyentapkan aku...

Rasa cam rendahnya plak....

Sedihnya rasa....

Pilu....

Or

Maybe i over sentitip....

Maklumla asyik2 balik kampung....cam takde kije nak buat...
Minggu ni rasa cam takmau balik kampung tapi bila dikenangkan lepas ni ntah bila boleh balik, pederas pi la walau baby tak sihat...nasib dia tak gheyau tengah hiway.
Rasa cam esok nak pederas balik kulim balik....dahla sentap tengok mak marah anak2 nakal asyik membising....budak-budak camnilah mak....mak bayangkan seharian i duk cam ni kat rumah....depa pi sekolah rasa aman sikit. Lepas balik, memang hiruk pikuk. Ini baru 2 budak, kalau lebih taktaula kan...sebab stress i dah jerit2 kat budak suh diam, Kesian pula depa nak main aci ligan ja....ada space besaq boleh lari. Kat sana sempit nak lari pun 5 langkah ja dapat....
cik baby pula ntah kenapa nangis ja...takmau susu dah bengkak dah ni....sigh. Ntahlah....nak balik la esok...laki takdak....bosannya takda pakar rujuk.

I over sensitip kowt....

Dalam banyak2 adik bradik akulah yang paling.....orang lain semua success. Aku jer cam ni...sob2. Dahla beb...i sensitip kot semenjak jaga anak sensorang ni....letih kot tapi sapalah i nak ngaku i letih i kan ouswipe saja....tak layak nak letih kan kan kan? huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu.................

I am doing better now...

Yep, doing much better.
After a while, i think i am more calm....
Jarang jadi gajah naik minyak dah.
Maybe because  i am alone caring for them...they need me.

Bukan tak marah, marah jugak tapi tak macam dulu. I am glad now.
I manage to finish my abandoned project....yeah!
Look la look la! Berbulan buat nih....konon nak buat bantal busuk cik baby....last2 baby pun dan besaq...so modify sket jadi pencil case ke make up case ke....gajet case ke...
Now can move on to the next proj...>>>topi minion.
Ini kalau nak buat sila rujuk ke website ni: http://www.annoocrochet.com/2012/11/free-granny-flower-pattern.html
senang ja nak buat, kalau tak faham tanya i okay...
Di blog Annoo ni banyak sangat design, boleh gila dibuatnya. Sangat rajin mereka2 ini kan?...
Sebab tu senang ada pinterest, bookmark saja situ. Bila nak, korek balik pin yang ada...



Well, we are moving out of Kulim very soon, a week after school break starts we will heading to Seri Kembangan and begin a new life there.

My shop....will scaling down the operation and keep it online and as a hobby biz until i am ready to hire people again...
Actually i m sick of this staffing issue. Wanna get some peace of mind. Without EPF SOCSO SALARY...
Bila dah bosan packing barang, baru hire and will really really interview for a good people! No more takpelah takpelah. You malas you GO! You rajin you STAY! Hate me GO, Love me ...please don't! Haha...

Kalau u takmau pakai pekerja, u kena pi ke pejabat KWSP di mana file u berada....tulis surat siap-siap yang you akan takda pekerja sekian-sekian sampai bila....then ada borang kena isi kat sana. Bila ada pekerja balik nanti, you kena inform pada pegawai yang berkenaan....then resume paying KWSP online as usual.

Untuk perkeso payah sikit...u know lah perkeso macam tak berdaya saing di dunia IT. Walau kata nak pindah depa still tak update new address....walau kata pekerja dan brenti depa still hantar borang....baik pi tutup akau terus. Boleh download borang di website depa. Borang takda pekerja.
Nanti kalau nak ada apekerja balik, register semula kat tempat baru. Lagi senang camtu.
Perkeso ni dia wajibkan kita bayaq tapi kemudahan takdak.....menyusahkan tul nak bayaq kena p bank. Kalau nak bayaq online kena p isi borang kat bank yg buka akaun....bila p bank tersebut depa pun taktau....tu camner. Sistem pangap.

Okies mama nak sambaung buat kije. Nanti mama update pasal Brillkids baru dan buku reading untuk budak2 bagi pandai baca dan new IKEA kitchen!!! Kbai! Assalamualaikum.

Anger Anger Please go Away

You know since my hubby go to work in KL, i have to care my 2 kids and a baby alone...no help from anyone.
I feel so helpless...
I asked my mom to stay with me since i live alone and i m scared of myself being angry..but she wants to go to her Islamic classes at hometown...
I understand she just wants her saham akhirat...as much as she could earn. Oh i wish to join her!

I tell you the truth, i don't even have time to 'membuang'...have to hold hold....no time to eat...hold on...house is messy all the time, if hubby around will make effort to clear the mess for him.

No time for everything. My baby also doesn't like to nap...ok naplah like 7-5 mins that's it. She sleeps at around 11 pm. If got rezeki, she will sleep early and i will have free time about 2 hours, if not...all of us will drift off to sleep together...leaving the house in the mess...i will wake up just to pray, prep Adam's bag for school and sign Adel's homework...

Yes I have no time for my own work...my new products will be put on hold....weeks without sale since cannot process. The longer i keep the more money I waste..

My hubby asked me to go to school for school transfer form...I said i have no time...don;t have time to poop and pee. I bath with my baby if not i will transform into a goat.
Yes, i have to prep lunch, go fetch them and go out again for kafa...my time is barely enuff.

No time to do Adam's revision whatsoeva...pity him.

And, since i am alone, i snapped lot's lot's lot's of time...

My baby, cannot be put down, She wants to be hold...all the time....

Adel, will create scenes every single day (middle child syndrome)...argggh!!! luckily she loves her sister.

I hate baby wearing, i am skinny my back ache!

This is just temporary...

Enjoy the 'moment'

Anger anger just bug off me!

Allah please guide me! Please!

Last Ramadhan in Kulim

It's Ramadhan again....syukur Allah kerana sempat dan boleh menjalani ibadah puasa sekali lagi.
Tahun ini, tahun last kami sekeluarga berpuasa di sini...

We will be moving out of our comfort zone.

Even tho i hate it, but i must follow.

My hubby lah, gatal apply job over there...got it pulak so....

I am so serabut since i just open a new shop here kan...money pouring still need time to recover.

A lot of things happened too fast...

But by moving, i can re-focus on more important things kan?

Yes, start again. Start all over again. My biz here pun dah lari alignment. Operating cost is high whilst coming in  - barely make it...

About my baby...
Baby, my baby has been diagnosed with a rare condition:congenital hemivertebra. So far nothing to worry we just have to monitor her development but as a result we have to go see doc pakar yang rare jugak for the rest of her life....kami redha. Nanti i tak bz I story ok....salam Ramadhan semua...enjoy the food for all.

Aku tak depress...

Ye....aku tak depress.
Letih kot. Tadi tak pasal2 marah kittens sebab taknak beri kerjasama dalam sesi bergambar. LOL. Kittens yang orang baru buang, Liar sikit. Peghak orang Kedah kata. Jakun. Aku suruh duduk diam2 sibuk nak lari. Baby dah ler nangis, Aku kena cepat ....piap bagi hambek.
Apelah yang kitten 2-3 bulan yang orang takmau tu tahu kan....berdosa aku. Astagfirullahalazimmmm....

Aku dah pesan, jangan ambil kucing dah....si F ni tak faham2. Tensen aku di situ. Sini bukan tempat buang kucing. Awat hangpa tak pi K.A.S.I...owh, buang kucing tak dosa ka? Sebab taknak rasa bersalah, mai buang kat aku plak....baguslah ye ringanlan beban you all dengan MENCAMPAKKAN masalah kat orang lain....benda gini cepat jer sebar mouth to mouth...kalau aku tak mampu aku buangkan jer. Kot banyak sangat nanti tak pasal2 kena saman kowt.
...
...
Aku doakan yang baik2 untuk keluargaku.
Semoga apa yang akan terjadi adalah yang terbaik.

Staff...staf nombo berapa ek? si F. Aku pejam mata jelah. Pastu cukup bulan bagi gaji. Aku redho jelah dengan perangai staff....takde yang perfect. Anggap la duit yang aku dapat bukan untuk aku. Cuma gaji yang aku bagi agak banyak juga....sedih gaklah dengan tahap kerja. S.i.g.h....aku tak buang orang cuma doakan yang baik2 jelah untuk semua.

Sekarang ni aku susah sikitlah nak fokus bisnes...ada baby yang lebih penting dan memerlukan perhatian. Baby tak suka duduk kedai. Tak boleh buat banyak kerja kat sana, duk sat balik....pi lawat kawasan jelah.

Kerja rumah ntah kenapa rasa banyak...especially baju. Rasanya dulu tak buat hari2, sekarang bakul asyik penuhhhh ajer. Kena gagah juga....

Homework, iqra, solat, makan, minum, potong kuku, mandi ke tak, kasut sekolah, baju sekolah, pensel tajam ke tidak, pemadam ada?, semua alatulis cukup, pakai spender terbalik ke betul....haa.. semua aku yang kena jaga....selalu kuku sendiri panjang sebab takda masa nak potong.

Kadang syiok tengok hubby, balik kerja main game....kalaulah aku boleh main game macam tu. Teringin nak main '5 night at freddy's'. Bukan marah kat dia. Takpelah dia penat kerja biarlah dia rehat....janji bagi duit kat aku. Tapi aku ni la...tak rehat2...
Lepas bebudak semua tido, turun plak kemas2 sapu sampah susun beg sekolah semua ready untuk esok.

Seriously speaking/writing....rindu sangat dengan aktiviti crochet dan menjahit....
Masa sangat limited, bisnes lagi malam2 ada 2-3 jam saja free time sebelum tidur.

Apa-apapun, aku sangat bersyukur dengan nikmat masa yang Allah berikan kepada aku. Aku memang tak ada masa untuk diri sendiri tapi banyak masa dapat diluangkan dengan baby dan kiddos.

Ok gud night dearest mommies. Like you guys, I have tonnes of chores awaiting downstairs.
...
...
aku tak depress. sungguh....
